Adventure of Bigfoot
By Curtis Borders
For Bunyon interpeter or TI-99/4A with Scott Adams' Adventure cartridge

Solution by Garry Francis
----------------------------------------
This is a minimal solution. You'll need to EXAMINE or LOOK at lots of things for this solution
to make sense. Some optional (but significant) commands are shown in brackets. You can omit these
once you know what to do.

Your inventory is limited to 5 items, so inventory management is important to avoid any
backtracking.

There are 12 rooms in the desert. You get thirsty in 10 of these rooms. I have shown these as
"thirsty rooms" on my map. For every move you spend in a "thirsty room", a
counter is incremented. When the counter gets to 5, you are warned that you are getting thirsty.
When it gets to 7, you are warned again. When it gets to 9, you die of thirst. If you take a drink
of water, the counter decreases by 4. You can drink water as often as you like, as the supply seems
to be endless. You need to spend a minimum of 6 moves in the "thirsty rooms", thus you can
get through the desert without a drink of water, but it's probably safer to take at least one
swig just to play it safe.
